Just kidding about the prison part.
Needless to say, being the bunch of wild and crazy kids we were, we had an absolute blast. Dave was always in my tape player (yes, I'm totally dating myself here by saying I owned a tape player). I also had a mad crush on the man. Not only was he sexy as all get out, his voice was unique and his song lyrics were brilliant. What's not to love?
Fast-forward 13 years.
Add a few more wrinkles to my face.
A few more dimples to my ass.
A wedding band to my left ring finger.
And you have ME on Sunday.
Same place, same time, same band, same me - different group of people, but it was just as fantastic!
Let's get started with pictures, shall we?
Let me give you a bit of a warning, mmkay?
I am white. I'm talking one shade from albino, Casper is my best friend, milk laughs at my whitness white. I've come to terms with this over the years. To protect my flourescent white skin, I must wear 2,000 proof sunscreen along with every ridiculous sunhat on the market. I'd like to keep from looking like a leather bag for as long as possible, so I deal.
Here's my dislcaimer to you: In the following pictures, I will be wearing a ridiculous sunhat - the kind that 80 year old Boca Raton, FL residents wear on a daily basis. This is also my PSA to WEAR SUNSCREEN and take care of your skin. Louisiana is nestled in the armpit of the sun, so it's a must.
On with it.
Here we are starting our day. You’ll note that Joe is a Fun Guy and my afro has roots that would do any PWT (poor white trash) person proud.
BTW, see how close to the stage we are?!
This is the only picture I have of Dave. I have to actually be honest here – another person took this. My lame ass left my camera with Joe while my sister and I went to get some food. On our way back, Dave was out of his bus signing autographs. We ran to get our cameras, but by the time we got back, he’d already gone back in. The nice girl standing next to me was able to get this shot of him, and she sent it to me.
I didn’t care – I still wanted a picture with him! Like any girl with no self-respect, I ran up to him and begged for a picture. He obliged. I think I scratched his retina with my dorky black hat. After waiting for Dave for 30 or so more minutes, I decided to head back. Better than Ezra was playing at the time, and they were doing a fantastic job. I missed most of their set, but I did get to hear a few songs. Oh, and I got to take this picture when they were done…
So, all in all it was a great and tiring day. We were there from pretty much the time the gates opened to the time when they closed. We were so exhausted at the end of the day but running on a DMB high (and also b/c I got to meet Red and the Better Than Ezra dude).
That is all for now. I have some video that I may upload later. We shall see!
